UnitedHealthcare Community Plan of Pennsylvania is offering two new text-messaging services for its Medicaid benefit plan customers.
Txt4health and Text4kids, developed by Voxiva Inc., deliver personalized messages to help people follow recommended preventive care guidelines, as well as well-child visits and developmental milestones, respectively.

Other Voxiva clients on the Txt4Health platform include Amerigroup.
